Pandawa Beach was once Bali’s best-kept secret, but this beautiful cliffside location is now a popular beach for local tourism. Located at the bottom of a large cliff development, Pandawa Beach – known locally as Pantai Pandawa – is set to become the next Bali hotspot, so the sooner you can visit it the better.

If you’re planning a trip to this beautiful Bali beach, keep reading for all the information you need to know, including how to get there, how much it is and what to expect.

Best time to visit Pandawa Beach Bali

As with most tourist spots in Bali, the earlier you can get there the better. If you can arrive at Pandawa Beach in the morning before the bus loads of tourists, you’ll likely enjoy the beach a lot more. However, if mornings aren’t your thing, this is a great all-day beach.

How to get to Pantai Pandawa Beach Bali

By far the best way to get around Bali is by scooter – this island is just not made for cars. Most accommodations will be able to arrange a scooter rental for you, and if you hire for multiple days you can usually haggle down to around 60,000 IDR per day. If you’re not comfortable driving in Bali, you can always hire a private driver online.

Pantai Pandawa Beach is at the very bottom of Bali, south of Nusa Dua. As its popularity has increased, so has its infrastructure, meaning the road to the beach is well-developed and easy to navigate. It’s also one of the few beaches in the Bukit Peninsula that you can access without a massive hike.

Pandawa Bali Beach Entrance Fee

There is a 15,000 IDR entrance fee for Pandawa Beach, plus an additional 2000 IDR parking fee for scooters and 5000 IDR for cars. You’ll have to access the beach through a manned gate, so there’s no avoiding this fee. You should also bring additional money for snacks, drinks and umbrella rental.

What to expect at Pandawa Beach In Nusa Dua

Upon arriving at Pandawa Beach, we noticed there were a lot of local tourists – more so than any other beach in Uluwatu we’d been to so far. The drive from the top of the cliff to the bottom had several places to stop and enjoy the view, and there were groups of people doing just that.
Towards the bottom of the cliff, there were enormous cutouts in the rock wall featuring statues of Hindu gods and figures. It was super impressive and not something we’ve seen before! After a quick look, we kept driving all the way to the bottom to the beach access.
The closer you stay to the parking area, the busier it is. If you want a bit more privacy, keep walking left and there’s plenty of beach to enjoy and far fewer people. If you’re an activities kind of person, Pandawa Beach is a great spot to rent a kayak as the waves are minimal here. You’ll probably also notice paragliders cruising above you!
If you’re more just into chilling, there are plenty of beach umbrellas to rent, or you can head to Roosterfish Beach Club for drinks, a swim in their pool and a bite to eat. As of now, it’s the only beach club on Pandawa Beach, but this is likely to change as the area becomes more and more popular.

Despite no longer being a secret or hidden beach, Pantai Pandawa is still well worth a visit, especially if you’re into beach activities. While you’re in Bukit Peninsula or Nusa Dua, don’t forget to check out other awesome beaches in Uluwatu like Nyang Nyang and Nunggalan Beaches, Green Bowl Beach, Subulan and Uluwatu Beaches, Balangan Beach and Bingin Beach.
